Dangal is still going strong at the box-office and the composer talked about his creation of the cool, critically and fan loved, music for the hit film. “I was keen on creating a certain soundscape of Dangal. While approaching the music, the soundscape I wanted to keep it in was Haryanvi obviously, because its based in Haryana. So you will find heavy influences of Haryanvi folk music in terms of instrumentation in it and multiple times we have gone to Haryana and recorded Haryanvi folk instruments.’

Coffee With D Is Fun In A Ditzy Way

21 January 2017 1:15 AM, PST

Starring Sunil Grover, Zakir Hussain, Anjana Sukhani, Dipannita Sharma, Pankaj Tripathy

Directed by Vishal Mishra

Isn’t it amazing what a slew of talented actors can do to an outrageous idea? Think of Coffee With D as a boys’ day out with Dawood, and you will actually enjoy the implausible goings on.

This is a what-if idea carried to an extreme of satirical eventuality but laced with lots humour and saved from a catastrophic plunge to inanity by actors who know how to hold the dialogues even when​ the words run all over the place.

Coffee With D suffers from a fundamental flaw. It presumes that a film about a clash between ‘Dawood’ and ‘Arnab’(the Gangster and the Newshound) would generate instant drama.

It does. And it doesn’t. While Sunil Grover makes an interesting getaway from his comic avatar on television to play the vociferous newshound with straightfaced self importance, »

The film which is scheduled to go on floors by the end of the month, is a revenge drama with a father-daughter relationship forming the crux of the story and who better than Aditi, to pull off a role that requires as much softness as it does strength.
